  • Any biologic therapy, also called a mAb (Xolair/omalizumab, Nucala/mepolizumab, Cinqaero/reslizumab, Fasenra/benralizumab)
  • Steroid tablets or liquid every day
  • Antibiotic tablets or liquid for asthma every week (e.g. azithromycin)
  • Tiotropium
  • A combination inhaler that also contains a long-acting bronchodilator (e.g. Seretide, Fostair, Symbicort) at a high daily steroid dose (see the list… the article)
  • An inhaler with a high daily steroid dose (see the list….in the article) AND you are taking Montelukast
  • Or, if:
  • You have been admitted to hospital for your asthma in the last 12 months
  • You have ever been admitted to an intensive care unit for your asthma


Then you should follow the shielding advice which is set out in very helpful detail, including how to register for extra services from the government.
